I read the letter from Rudy Droguett with interest. At first I agreed with him. Why should we spend time on negative things? Then I thought about the other side of it. The articles have helped me in planning for a trip. And warnings from travelers about areas where they have journeyed (can help) others plan around those spots or alter their behavior to avoid what could spoil a trip or be dangerous.
I wish that someone had warned about the theft in Hawaii that is connected with rental cars. My son had a bad experience with theft of a purse from a car, then the added financial burden of being charged with repair of the car where the lock had been stripped off the car by the thieves.
